Lauren; 21. I’m a loser from Sheffield currently living and studying in Birmingham.
I can’t function properly on less than two cups of tea, two sugars. I have an eternal love for black eyeliner, long eyelashes and the 1940’s & 50’s.
I seem to have started collecting cardigans, nail varnish, tattoo magazines and notebooks; I never know what to put in them.
I’m also pretty certain that me and my friends are low level alcoholics.
I live with nine girls, but I’m hardly a girly girl – however I still appreciate a cute dress and a pair of heels.
Horror is my film genre of choice; Tim Burton, Vincent Price and Robert Englund are my heroes.
Music is the love of my life; Sleeping With Sirens, Asking Alexandria, Young Guns, Bury Tomorrow, Hands Like Houses, Woe, Is Me, Bring Me The Horizon, Crown The Empire, ISSUES…the list goes on, and has a few very odd extras thrown in for good measure.
I’ve essentially got the mental age and concentration skills of a five year old, which is probably why I draw.
I plan on either being a tattoo artist or a freelance illustrator.
